Barcelona fitness Coach Paco Seirullo has claimed that Carles Puyol will be back to full training in three weeks.
The centre-back had knee surgery over the summer, with many suggesting that the Blaugrana would sign a defender as cover for the captain.
That however, was not the case, and Seirullo has insisted that the Spain international will be back to his best.
“Puyol is likely to be back in three weeks,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“His knee is doing fine.
“He will be the player he was before.”
